Music Monday: ‘Parachute’ by Chris Stapleton

March 28, 2016

This one is a little more transparent than the other songs I’ve shared recently. It just makes me think of how much I love Robby :) That’s why I like it! To listen to the song, just hit play on the clip below. Let me know what you think in the comments – have you ever heard of him or listened to his music?
From Genius: “The song is the ruminations of an estranged lover who realizes that the relationship he lost—and now misses—ended because of things he neglected to say or do. He’s willing to come back if she ever reaches a time of need, even if she ignores him until then.”
Street lights along the highway
Throwing shadows in the dark
And the memories keep on turning
To the rhythm of a broken heart

You only need a roof when it’s raining
You only need a fire when it’s cold
You only need a drink when the whiskey
Is the only thing you have left to hold
Sun comes up and goes back down
And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground
Say the word and I’ll be there for you
Baby, I will be your parachute

There’s a song that I remember
I never learned to play
And a lifetime of forgotten words
I never got to say


If you think you’re going down
Just know I will be around


What is this Music Monday? As a past depression sufferer (read more on that here), listening to music has been a form of therapy for me. Music Monday is a weekly event where I share a song favorite of mine that I’m passionate about and can relate to. I analyze the meaning and symbolism of the lyrics, or point out why it resonates with me. I also sometimes may simply share the video and lyrics and let you come to your own conclusion or let it speak for itself. I’m a lover of rock music and enjoy sharing the gems that I find hit my soul with my friends. I hope you’ll enjoy these songs, as I do!
